Forget "craft" and "micro" - this is artisan brewing

A fitting subtitle to an article about the deep brewing scene within the district commonly referred to as Wine Country. I've gone on numerous tangents about the unparalleled quality and diversity of the north-of-the-north-bay brewing scene, but it's always nice to see it reinforced by the real (read: inky-fingered fish wrap) press. And if the images of Ken Allen showing off his precious copper brewing kettles (complete with rawking retro sci-fi-tastic copper control panel!) and Vinnie Cilurzo's collection of oak barrel Belgians doesn't get you drooling, maybe you need to spend an afternoon sipping Brother David's Double while playing frolf at the Anderson Valley biergarten. Reading this almost makes me want to go down to the cellar and crack open that magnum of Supplication I've had aging down there the past couple years. Almost.

That magnum? It's for when you come back, mister JB.

Beersick in Deutschland? It can happen. These purity laws get in the way of a good, funky stout... ;)

If I'm really really good, can I have some of the magnum too? Can I?
